Enlivening Biophilia: Sky Factory Makes Visiting the Dentist Less Stressful
Sky Factory Illusions of Nature™ are transforming the look and feel of dental offices worldwide. Virtual skylights and windows improve the experience of dental visits by promoting patient relaxation and expanding claustrophobic spaces. AACD #929.
Dr. Lou Cooper of New York Pediatric Dentistry in Westchester County, New York installed a custom arc-shaped Luminous SkyCeiling™, the Sky Factory’s signature virtual skylight, over the treatment area to bring a natural element into the space. He explains, “I chose the SkyCeiling because I wanted to do something spectacular and different in our office. We don’t have exterior windows and this really opened things up, bringing light and the outside in. It’s very unique and dramatic, and makes all of us feel good.”
While the patient is looking up at a SkyCeiling, the staff is actually experiencing the same illusion and the resulting benefits through their peripheral vision. Luminous SkyCeilings trigger the same psycho-physiological relaxation response as an experience of real sky. The realistic illusion of sky can even modify the viewer’s subjective experience of vertical space, making enclosed areas feel more open and less claustrophobic. The added dimmable feature is ideal for locations where precise 0-100% illumination control is desired.
